Cairns lies on Trinity Bay, Far North Queensland. It is one of the coastal towns resting along the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is the southern gateway to the sparsely inhabited Cape York Peninsula. Queensland's wet tropics and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, a couple of World Heritage Sites, are close to the city. Before 1879, when the city was established, the only inhabitants of this area were the Aborigines, culture for which Australia is best known. The historic museum of Cairns reveals the traditions of this old Australian tribe. From the city of Cairns travelers can visit the Great Barrier Reef and take the rainforest train up to Kuranda; then return skimming over the trees below by Sky Train.
In 1770, the British navigator James Cook named Trinity Bay on Trinity Sunday. The region that is now Cairns was settled by Europeans in 1876 as a port for Hodkinson River goldfield 60 miles (100 km) inland. The settlement was named after William Wellington Cairns, governor of Queensland in the mid 1870s.
